League legend Nick Cowan ill in hospital
Posted on 2nd January 2022 at 20:22
Legendary former Doncaster Town and Rotherham Town captain, Nick Cowan, is recovering in Doncaster Royal Infirmary after an operation to amputate his right leg just below the knee a couple of days just before Christmas. Nick, who was inducted into the League’s Hall of Fame in in 2019, has suffered from diabetes for a number of years.
A tough-talking, no-nonsense and astute captain, Nick has been retired from playing for 18 years now, but is still a popular figure on the League circuit, remaining heavily involved at his beloved club, Doncaster Town.
His reputation as a fighter will put him in good stead against his latest battle, and he hopes to have a prosthetic limb fitted to enable him to visit his many friends in the local cricket family during the summer.
Unfortunately he is not allowed any visitors at the hospital due to Covid restrictions, but the messages of goodwill from all his friends in the game will play a large part in his recovery.
We all wish him well and hope he recovers quickly, and look forward to seeing him and hearing his unique brand of story-telling and wit at our grounds in the summer.
